War Games

Once before, I played that game.

No shame.

With nobody to blame.

I played with fire, and got burned by a self-destructive flame.

I’m one for peace, no longer for violence.

Under this rising light, I have new guidance.

Looking to find more strength, take away the pain.

It’s time for me to reclaim, and claim what I could gain.

I’m different now, and that’s okay – I know not everything will be the same.

I’m spared from asking if I’m insane.

I’ve killed the demons haunting my heart and brain.

And although every scar remains, I’ve locked my evil away with every chain.

I’ve won and survived my war game.
